Ray Borg returns to Flyweight at UFC Rio Rancho Feb 15
UFC will make it’s return to New Mexico on Feb 15 for the first time since ’14. The Fight Night card will be held in Albuquerque suburb Rio Rancho at Santa Ana Star Center. Only two bouts have been confirmed so far, both at Flyweight. Ray Borg will face off against Dana White’s Contender Series contract winner Rogério Bontorin and Montana de la Rosa takes on Mara Romero Borella.
Albuquerque native Borg (12-4) will be looking for back to back wins following his recent victory over Gabriel Silva at UFC San Antonio back in July. His opponent Rogério Bontorin (16-1) is enjoying a four fight win streak and undefeated in UFC since winning his contract in August ’18. He defeated Raulian Paiva by second round doctor’s stoppage at Fight Night Uruguay and has a decision win over Magomed Bibulatov at Fight Night Fortaleza.
Mara Romero Borella (12-6) also found victory on the same Fortaleza card over Taila Santos via split decision. Borella lost her most recent bout by third round TKO to Lauren Murphy at Fight Night Newark this year in August. She faces Montana de la Rosa (10-5) who was on a three fight win streak until her recent loss to Andrea Lee at UFC Greenville.
Tickets go on sale December 20. Check back here at World Combat Report for further updates as this card comes together.
